This thread is aimed at first time viewers of Death Note
and its purpose is to allow spoiler free speculation and theories to be aired. Having them in a central location may help focus the discussion instead of spreading speculation over the various episode discussion threads. If you are knowledgeable of the manga and wish to speculate or discuss theories, then please do not post in this thread
(use the Death Note - Spoilers & Speculation thread
) and do not give away any spoilers in this thread!
Acceptable post topics
Personal theories, speculation, guesses and such. No spoiler tags required.
Posting magazine previews (such as from Animage). Spoiler tags required.
Unacceptable post topics
Any form of spoiler from Death Note manga.
Please make sure you use spoiler tags when making posts concerning the second topic above!
Also provide where the source of such speculation come from if at all possible (i.e. "Animeage") and identify any spoiler tags with the use of the subject title
(see the paragraph below how to do this). Untagged spoilers are risking a ban for the poster as will any unacceptable speculation or facts from the Death Note manga. Please use the Report
if you see any unmarked spoilers.
If you don't know how to use a spoiler tag, please read the BB Code FAQ
Spoiler tag examples
[spoiler] Text to be hidden [/spoiler] becomes
[spoiler=subject title] Text to be hidden [/spoiler] becomes
Finally, please remain on-topic and do not use this thread if it's just discussion about the current or previous episodes.
